What Women Want (in new construction)

As the second-largest segment of U.S. home buyers, single women are making their preferences known to home builders. Below are the top 10 must-haves for women: 
1. Mud rooms that eliminate the inevitable pile of shoes, boating equipment, backpacks and stuff in the front entrance. 
2. Flexible spaces that allow for multi-generational living, including bonus rooms.
3. Storage! Closets, pantries and garage space. The master closet should always be upgraded (even if it’s just for re-sale).
4. Home offices.
5. Gourmet kitchens with the best of everything.
6. Comfortable places for dining, but not a separate dining room.
7. Locations that are both safe and in proximity to amenities and future friends.
8. A bathtub somewhere in the home and a large walk-in shower in the master.
9. Spaces to entertain and socialize, including outdoor amenities like fireplaces and pergolas.
10. Floor plans that flow.
